|Global Visions film series begins Sept. 26|
The Global Visions Film Series opens its fall semester film series at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, with Tsotsi (South Africa), in the Lecture Bowl, Memorial Union.
The film was a 2006 Academy Award winner for best foreign film. Tsotsi takes place on the edges of Johannesburg, South Africa. In the slums of Johannesburg, 19-year-old Tsotsi’s (Presley Chweneyagae) life has no meaning beyond survival. Orphaned at an early age, he has learned to fend for himself. One night, driven to the brink of desperation, Tsotsi steals a woman’s car. But as he is driving off, he makes a shocking discovery in the backseat. His life is about to change forever.
Other films are Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the Lecture Bowl, Memorial Union, and are free and open to the public.
